Man oh man! I did the deed. My wife and I casrated our first pig! :no: I ain't never grew up around farm animals. All self-taught and mostly from what I've learned here. This was another big hurdle for me. I used a utility knife with a new blade and my wife held him. Unfortunately he wasn't as young as I'd have liked ... he is about 10 weeks old. Took a minute to find them! Made the incisions and pulled them out and packed iodized salt mixed with actual iodine on it. The only problem I have is when I got done there might have been a "cord" left dangling. I didn't even realize this until a minute ago. This was pretty traumatic for me, my wife and of course the pig. If there is something still hanging, will it dry up and fall off? There wasn't much blood either. I give my wife A LOT of credit. This was really tough for her to do.
